A ONE-WOMAN dark comedy about ageing is the topic of a play coming to Caernarfon.

Former BBC Wales TV producer turned writer Ailsa Jenkins' hilarious new play “The Invisible Woman” is at the Galeri, on 7.30pm, on Saturday, November 2.

Described as 'brilliantly funny and poignant,' the play invites audiences to follow the story of Mari (Nicola Reynolds; Ideal, Human Traffic) on her hilarious crusade to right the wrongs of her community.

Undeterred by menopausal back fat, she sets out on a campaign of ‘invisible justice' determined to make herself seen by those who matter most.

Ailsa Jenkins is an intelligent, quirky woman who has overcome a great deal in her life, and has her own a fascinating story to tell.

She has had two bouts of cancer, left a career in broadcasting and is now a successful writer. She is keen to help other women do the same with a series of workshops to help women find their voice.

The play premiered at Cardiff’ Wales Millennium Centre to audience reviews on Thursday, October 17.

Jenkins' debut play confronts society’s dismissal of women over 40. It was inspired by her own sense of disappearance after a battle with cancer ended her successful media career.

The Swansea-born TV producer and director was determined to tell a story that all too many women will relate to. By shining a spotlight on society and the media’s often unspoken dismissal of women as they reach middle age, this humorous monologue gives an important voice to this all too familiar norm.

Addressing relatable topics from family, mental health and dieting, The Invisible Woman celebrates female empowerment and challenges audiences to rethink their own potential.

A talk will follow the Galeri show and a writing workshop with the playwright Ailsa Jenkins will also be held between 2.30-4.30pm on Saturday, November 2.

Places are limited. Ticket details through the Galeri Box Office: 01286 685222.
